Bounce’s aerial arts program puts on several fantastic shows throughout the year, featuring the youth program, adults, and coaches.
Zenith Aerial Arts (ZAA) is Eugene’s professional youth aerial circus ensemble, based at Bounce Gymnastics and Circus Arts Center. These elite young artists are long-time advanced level students recognized for their dedication, creativity, and desire to perform. Every winter, ZAA creates and performs a completely original show at the Hult Center, with proceeds donated to a local non-profit chosen by the members. In addition to their own shows, ZAA has been featured in Bounce’s annual full program productions, in house showcases, community events and collaborations with other local performance companies. Their performances are great for all ages, and are sure to amaze with high level aerial talent and innovation.
Every June, Bounce puts on a giant production with the entire aerial arts youth program at the Hult Center. These shows are based on movies and stories we all know and love. Previous performances include The Jungle Book, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, James and the Giant Peach, The Wizard of Oz, The Lion King, Night at the Museum, Finding Nemo and How to Train Your Dragon. These shows are also fun and amazing for all ages. Every show features our intermediate, advanced and ZAA performance troupe students, as well as performances by our beginning level students.
At least once per year, Bounce’s adult students are invited to perform at an in house aerial showcase. These intimate shows are a fun introduction to performing and a way to show off
aerial skills to friends and family. Special guest appearances from coaches as well.
